Bryan Danielson Opens Up About Injury Struggles

Will Ospreay forearm Bryan Danielson

Bryan Danielson has shared a health update.

After being defeated by Will Ospreay at Dynasty, Bryan Danielson took some time off, only returning to the ring in tag team action on May 11th. Ospreay earned the win following a Storm Driver ’91 and Hidden Blade. After the match, medics and officials checked on the American Dragon given his history of concussion issues, although he was able to walk backstage.

At the post-show media scrum, Will Ospreay said he’d be retiring the Storm Driver ’91, apologising for hurting Danielson. However, this is reportedly part of a storyline rather than Danielson sustaining a serious injury.

But that doesn’t mean the star emerged totally unscathed.

While appearing on The Wrestling Classic, Danielson explained that his neck has been bothering him.

“I’m having some issues with my neck,” Danielson said. “There was a thing where I gave him a Frankensteiner and he landed on his feet, and in the background nobody noticed it I don’t think at the time, but when I did it I landed right on my head, and I was like ‘oh my gosh.’ I’ve needed some time after that … but in the MRI I’m okay, but like how do I feel on a day-to-day basis? My neck is like ‘ehh.'”
